RavenDB

It worked quite well as a centralized location for data from different existing sources with fast data loading into it with a generous free tier to get a good understanding of how to use it. Although it was kind of clunky getting it to work on Linux due to the certificates required.The clients for languages like python and NodeJS exist but are a little under documented — although the C# one was rather good.

Cons

RavenDB

  • In previous versions the documentation was terrible - however, since v4.0 the documentation is excellent.
  • Any minor complaints are generally resolved by the team the same day. I suggested at one time some minor tweaks to Studio (showing the number of items in an array) and they were implemented almost immediately.
  • Nothing really to complain about.

We've had an excellent experience using RavenDB. Internally we are testing the newer features in 5.0 such as time series, which will effect the con specified previously dependent on the real world performance. We foresee that BattleCrate will continue to use RavenDB as we grow.

RavenDb does all the heavy lifting for you in 99% of cases. The API is easy to work with and lets you write very readable code. There is a small learning curve at the start but this is true for any tech. Raven's curve is easy to get over.

Very good support that answered fast, nice and reliably. The problems were always resolved quickly and competently, even if the user was the problem. If any unusual issues arose, the support was proactive in contacting me to resolve problems or roadblocks I might have had.

RavenFS changed along the way and made us change the codes.

Alternatives Considered

RavenDB

When I first started using RavenDB, I did evaluate Mongo DB but found it to be lacking. The primary issue was that Mongo DB did not support atomic consistency for the persistence of multiple documents at the same time, although I think this may not be an issue with subsequent releases of Mongo DB. If for some reason I were forced to select an alternative Document Database, I would probably evaluate PostgreSQL or CosmosDB.

Return on Investment

RavenDB

  • Not having to debug perf issues caused by ORM.
  • Not having to deal with SQL as you denormalize your app data model.
